briefing along with the attorney-general and the director of the fbi. just like the analysts and special agents who are working these issues, we aim to stay on top of the threat picture and to help devise tactics and strategies and tools for getting ahead of it. today its standard -- it is standard procedure for agents conducting counterterrorism investigations to consult throughout the process with attorneys and prosecutors in the national security division. that is to ensure that all potential avenues for destruction of a threat, intelligence gathering, investigation and prosecution are all preserved. if you asked me to break down how much intelligence versus how much law enforcement work we do, i would be hard pressed to give you an answer. we are almost always pursuing multiple tracks at the same time. we no longer have to across organizational lines to bring tools and talent to bear against a particular threat or problem. for instance, our office lawyers in the office of intelligence work day in and day out with the intelligence community to secure authorities under the surveillance

. can they help and protect themselves? >> reporter: they can to some extent. the fbi has the executive order to leave -- lead the defense against cyber-terrorism, they keep it a close secret. so companies like cloud strike, have come up with ways to thwart an attack, by feeding the wrong information to the hackers, which makes them doubt what hayare stealing and confuses them and renders the data worthless. this is one effort to combat china and russia, who are suspected of trying to steal america's business secrets or bring down critical structure. >> if this was the physical world and paratroopers descended over silicon valley and guys grabbed computers and ran out twould be missiles flying. but this happens every day in the cyber security space, where adversaries come in and steal everything and off to another country they go. there goes our intellectual property. >> reporter: that can include plans for weapons systems and less leathal products, soda recipes -- anything that makes america competitive. the sophisticated software that attacks our critical infrastructure is hit in the
to be tightened. and states need to report back to the fbi system for background checks their people that should not be purchasing guns. those that are mentally ill convicted of a felon those who have been convicted of domestic violence. those people should not be allowed to purchase a gun and they should be in the system but thousands, millions of records are missing from the system. >> john: i couldn't agree with you more and i think you just said a lot of facts that a lot of americans agree with. i'm sure when the founders made the constitution, they intended for people to have as many muskets as they wanted for their well-regulated militias. >> exactly! >> john: it is ludicrous. i think it's a fair argument there is no individual right to own weapons although i respect that debate. when did you nancy become involved in the mayor's campaign against illegal violence to demand a plan for this? >> well, soon after the tragedy here in tucson where congressman giffords was shot and six other people were murdered, mayors against illegal guns came through tucson and brought to our awareness 34 ameri
warehouse become the official headquarters for the fbi? how virginia officials are putting out a force to win the spot. >>> up next how local schools stack up against the rest of the nation. one middle school shows us a fraction can be fun. that's saying something. >>> maryland leads the class when it comes to the rankings of the nation's school system. education week will rate the school first in the country. now, they received the highest grade of the b plus. virginia, they came in 4th in the nation with the b and the district rates 45th with the c minus. the national average is the c plus. >> math matters in this week's cool school. time to fall off the bus at the middle school where their love for video games is making fashion much fun. how is that even possible? mike hydeck explains. >> vinny, your problem? >> reporter: fraction, a big part of math in the sixth grade. >> teach me how to multiply one half times 7/8. >> all right, one times seven is seven and two times eight is 16. >> all right. >> reporter: what's cool about this lesson is how they got to this point. >> here's what
are making a strong push to bring the fbi headquarters to the commonwealth. mark warner and tim kaine and members of area board of supervisors gathered in arlington yesterday. they stopped short of endorsing a specific location but say a metro accessible warehouse owned by government in springfield is ideal. prince george's county is pushing to bring the site to maryland. >>> new evidence could jeopardize the conviction of the man who killed chandra levy. it could taint the -- he was convicted in 2010 of killing the 24-year-old in 2001. chandra levy's body was found a year later. that's about all we know at this point. there have reportedly been two secret meetings between the judge and prosecutors which is very rare according to some defense attorneys. >> the secrecy it's reported as a result of a judge not wanting there to be public disclosure and apparently to protect witnesses. i get that. but it's exceedingly rare. i've never seen it. >> this new evidence could lead to a new trial for guandique who was in jail when he was charged with levy's murder. it's not clear whether the evi
interviewed. there were clues in the fbi. the fbi did not talk to the cia. we came up with a model that fixed the pentagon. the pentagon used to have the services staffing and fighting separate wars. they would equip themselves separately. we decided to do what the military did. a joint command was created. he can come from any military service. they now trained and equipped to gather. the dni is the joint commander across 16 intel agencies. he leverage is their strength to produce intel products. that is the backbone of how we get intelligence to policy makers and that has dramatically improved. on the fusion centers, that is a different thing. those are local centers that have gone up to serve local law enforcement. they pull together national intelligence streams that they get from the homeland security department or the fbi with streams of local intelligence and a share it. the homelands department has tried to insist on privacy in these agencies and provide some financial support. this is a work in progress. some of them worked very well. one in los angeles works very well. other communi
. as a matter of fact, during 2010 there were more than 76,000 cases referred by the fbi to the justice department. do you know how many were prosecuted out of 76,000 in 2010, the last year we have data for? 44. not 44,000, 44 out of 76,000. this is a joke, and it's a sad joke, and it's a lethal joke. these are felony cases involving criminals trying the to buy guns -- trying to buy guns, and yet our federal government is prosecuting less than one-tenth of 1% of them. it is shameful, and it has to end, and the president can do it by just picking up the phone and saying to his justice department this is your job, go do it or i'll get somebody that will. the third, president can make a recess appointment to head the federal bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. the atf, as it's called, habit had a director -- hasn't had a director for six years. can you imagine how much outrage there'd be if we'd been without a homeland security secretary for six years? this is as much a public safety threat as it would be if there weren't a secretary for homeland security. and if congress keeps blocki
just look at the fbi statistics, although we have horrific events that occur with these guns sometimes, mostly it is pistols and handguns that are involved statistically in the crimes. if you are going to attack the murders in this country, you would attack those other guns. i'm wondering why you think it is that they'd like to go after the assault weapons at this time. >> i think lz was exactly right. there is three different conversations going on and i think they have to turn it into one big comprehensive approach. if it's only framed as an assault weapons ban, it will have a very difficult time going through congress. but, yes, you know, the president is going to have to spend the capital. he has it and he's going to have to spend it. i'm sure vice president biden, who is now pregnant with this, this is his baby, and in case we haven't noticed, he's already running for president, is going to want something done. and the problem, drew, is the issue is not going away. as cnn was covering the meetings of the vice president on the issue, they had to break away because there was yet ano
have to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all the information. so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force thursday, but he did not mention a new assault weapons ban. sterling's speculation the white house is dropping the proposal. but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn, avoiding this issue just because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think that there's going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the congress. >> reporter: the nra can simply point to what happened in 1994 when president bill clinton signed the last assault weapons ban into law. democrats lost control of both houses of congress to republicans. >> he's become the only republican candidate in indiana with an f-rating from the nra. >> reporter: last year, the nra proved it was willing to go after the gop, as well, runni
. it could mean a shut down at the fbi, prisons might have to stop operating, courts would, of course, close. it would mean chaos, but that seems to be what they want, i guess, chaos, which i guess they'll then somehow use as leverage. is that right? >> well, apparently that is their argument. i think the problem is we've seen this movie before. it happened under gingrich's watch when clinton was president. it certainly didn't rebound to gingrich's favor. it ended up helping clinton. his poll numbers went up, and i imagine that the same thing would happen with obama. and, of course, there would be this attendant impact on the economy and attendant impact on people getting their government benefits and all sorts of things. so, again, i think the republican party talks about refashioning and rebranding and i think one of the ideas is to look at reagan. they always talk about reagan, but if you look at some of the things reagan actually did around immigration reform, for instance, this isn't a party that so far is will to do that and embrace some of those parts of reagan's legacy. >> steve, we
